    cosmicbike Perhaps This One.....

    The RD on my commuter has become rather noisy of late, and looking at the jockey wheels they are smoothing off, with the chain not sitting on them nicely. They have done 9000 miles so no complaints.

    A replacement SRAM set is about £18. Anybody care to recommend an alternative before I simply replace like for like?

    I have used bbb on Sram mechs a couple of times with no issues. About £9 from CRC

    TACX are not bad as a cheaper alternative

  4. Can't help with an alternative, but I replaced mine with SRAM ones (save £1.01 at Chain Reaction here Woo!) They are fine, but I did need to re-index the gears. Using my patented random twiddle method this is quite a drawn out process.
